The newest member of the royal family has arrived: a son, born to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, the duke and duchess of Sussex.

Prince Harry, 34, stepped away from royal father duty just briefly to speak with members of the media.

“This little baby is absolutely to die for. I'm just over the moon," he told reporters Monday outside Frogmore Cottage, the couple’s home not far from Windsor Castle, according to the Associated Press. “We’re both absolutely thrilled and so grateful for all the love and support from everybody out there. It’s been amazing, so we just wanted to share this with everybody."

Prince Harry said Markle, 37, and the boy are doing "incredibly well."

"How any woman does what they do is beyond comprehension," Harry gushed.

Harry said he planned to make another announcement, probably in two days’ time, “so everyone can see the baby.”

It’s expected they will pose for a family picture at that point.

This marks the first interracial baby in the monarchy’s recent history. The newborn sits just behind Prince Harry in line to the British throne -- in the seventh spot. It’s unclear if he’ll get a royal title.
